PhD Studentship - please circulate

Landscape-scale conservation of pollinating insects in the lowland British countryside

The University of Northampton invites applications for a three year full-time studentship in the Landscape and Biodiversity Research Group of the School of Science and Technology.

Insects such as bees, flies and butterflies provide an essential ecosystem service by pollinating crops and wild plants. There is growing evidence that pollinator numbers have declined significantly due to rapid environmental change, particularly habitat loss, intensive agriculture and climate change. In order to halt and reverse these declines, effective conservation strategies must be adopted, based on a sound understanding of the ecology of the pollinators and the landscapes on which they depend. The conservation of species requires an understanding of their resource requirements if habitats are to be effectively managed to support those taxa. This project will study how lowland British landscapes support the major groups of wild pollinators in terms of both the floral resources that are provided (particularly by the "core generalist" plants at the centre of communities) and nesting/egg laying sites, larval food plants and other requirements. The study will focus on the landscapes along the River Nene Valley.

Applications are welcomed from national or international candidates with a first degree (first or upper second, or equivalent) or a Masters degree in the area of ecology, biology or geography. Due to the significant amount of field work involved applicants must be able to travel effectively.

Deadline for applications: 12th February 2012
Interviews will be held in the week commencing 27th February 2012
